This hostel is excellent. The building is cool. It was very, very clean. Staff were friendly and super helpful. That said, a word of warning to avoid surprises: Hosteling International requires a membership, so unless you purchase the full membership, you get charged $3/day extra. Also this location charges $5/day for parking. Finally, you have to have a credit card otherwise you have to re-check in each night even if you had a reservation. You can still pay with a debit; just need credit on file

Heritage building, perfect location on a leafy green street. Wonderful communal areas & patio. Easy walking distance to everything. Shared bathroom facilities were never crowded, and kitchen was super clean. Staff busy but always friendly & helpful. Would like to be able to leave voice-mail when no-one is at the front desk to take phone calls. Last but by NO means least, their scent-free laundry & cleaning products make this is a good option for folks with fragrance sensitivities.
